So YouTube has decided to go the way of Twitter in terms of mass censorship by implementing a new program called "YouTube Heroes". The platform has
decided to crowd source censorship and reward people for essentially "spying on their neighbor" with full-time unpaid employment with Google and the
ability to mass flag users and shut down their channels.
As this particular YouTuber put's it, this is just BEGGING to be abused. You need to pay people to do an unbiased job in reporting and removing users
from the website, not crowd source it to select individuals who like to hit the report button and give them the power to remove users they don't agree
The irony is that after the extreme backlash, YouTube decided to disable comments on the video... and were forced to block the same people they want
to be hall monitors on their platform.
When a video launching your new product receives a like/dislike ratio of about 24k to 800k, you know the people aren't going to stand for it. YouTube
and Twitter are falling like rocks.

Knowing how cozy the CIA/NSA has gotten with Google and FaceBook, this doesn't surprise me at all. I bet these alphabet agencies are directly
involved in the implementation (and use) of this new program
There's plenty of other video hosting websites, youtube are well within their rights to do whatever they want as it's their company
What's funny though is despite all the backlash nobody will move from their comfort zone and will stick with the Ministerium für
Staatssicherheit, I mean youtube..... (same thing really now isn't it comrades ?)
So youtube is now turning into a safe place, the SJW's are silently winning

I have seen these folks in action, while watching a fairly small group of folks doing their live stream of "the Wayne Dupree Show" numerous times
the past couple of weeks...
When a topic that isn't of their liking, the cut the feed on YT and replace it with a black screen with a YT logo...
Funny thing is, when I found the show from yesterday, the entire show is available, you can see the hosts reacting on the show video... without
the blackout screen that is witnessed when you are observing LIVE...
Here's yesterday's show:
Go to the 49 minute mark and watch for a few minutes...
I will be tuning in once again at 9PM EST for tonight's live stream, and see how many more times they are censored by the YT Heroes....
I think I've seen nagative videos on this program from nearly every single one of the channels I peruse from video game sites to anti-social justice
sites to conspiracy in religion sites to plain religion sites to others. I've seen lots of other feeds from the other ends of the spectrum in channels
I don't watch but have a general idea which way they swing.
In today's climate, nearly everyone has something that could drastically offend someone to the point of being mass flagged and censored.
This is the problem with PC having gone from intent to impact like it has. Heck, even Grumpy Cat might be offensive to the wrong bleeding heart animal
I think this user made parody on the heroes effectively sums it up
Hopefully people will start moving away from the alphabet agency controlled social media platforms as they keep pushing boundaries to make it look
like it's run more like North Korea than any company in the West
